One thing that influenced the life of the church was the ministry of the Messenger Quartet. Upon the invitation of the church they visited the community three different times. People responded to the gospel message through their ministry and church growth resulted. By their 10th anniversary, the little church, with seating capacity of 100 was full. The Sunday School facilities were taxed to the limit. After much prayer and discussion a decision was made to build a new building to seat 250 people. The first service in the new sanctuary was held on September 1982.
